Computer actionable policies are used to enforce management, automate administrative tasks, validate assessment criteria, and automate scientific analyses. The benefits of using policies include minimization of the amount of labor needed to manage a collection, the ability to publish to the users the rules that are being used, and the ability to automate process management.
Currently all sites and scientific communities use their own set of policies, if any. A generic set of policies that can be revised and adapted by user communities and site managers who need to build up their own data collection in a trusted environment does not exist.
What are the Goals?
The goals of the working group therefore are
To bring together practitioners in policy making and policy implementation
To identify typical application scenarios for policies such as replication, preservation etc.
To collect and to register practical policies
To enable sharing, revising, adapting, and re-using of computer actionable policies
